Catch up and a knitted hat FO!

Ok...sorry I have been MIA lately. I've been super busy and just distracted. My state of mind lately has been distracted. :) Big shock right? Ok...there has been knitting, spinning, and doggie stuff....but no blogging or podcasting. For this I am sorry. Here's my first blog back and I promise to podcast on Friday! I'm taking Friday and Tuesday off because tomorrow I turn 29!! Yes. It's my birthday! I was born on May 21st, 1980 in Panama.

So, since we are talking about my birthday...I guess I can tell you my weekend plans. :) Tomorrow night for my actual day, Kenny is taking me to our favorite sushi restaurant! We haven't been in a LONG time so I'm very excited! I already know what rolls I'm ordering! Then Friday I am off from work! YEAH!! So, my plan is to record a podcast, visit my friend and her baby, and craft! If my other friend is feeling better by Friday, my plan is to go over her house and we are going to spin and drink pina may have to become a hot drink if the weather stays rainy and chilly. :) Than Friday night, I'm going to see my nephew's band concert and then we are having cake for my niece.

Saturday, I've planned a girls brunch for my birthday with my sisters, nieces and some friends. We are going to this breakfast place by the beach. The rest of the day I'm not sure about...I know at some point sat or Sunday I plan to have cake with my family for my birthday. I'm not allowed to share Surfer girls cake so we have to have two days of cake this weekend. :) Surfer girl's birthday was last weekend but the family was in Orlando watching my cousin's husband do the half iron man. :) there is a run down of my birthday weekend! Tuesday I'm taking off because I am doing an allergy test. I have decided to go on allergy shots so I can control them better so I have to do the test first. ugh! It will be the third one I've done in my will be interesting to see what I'm still allergic to.

I just got back from knit night and I had a great time! We had a small group and one of my friends for my guild joined us and it was great having her! this is a knitting blog...I have an FO to share!! I finished the hat I was knitting for my sister Felicia out of my hand spun. The black is hand spun merino and the other yarn is the BFL in the Felicia colorway I bought from It was YUMMY!! I used the Turn a Square pattern by Jared Flood. I really liked this pattern! The yarn was way more bulky that I thought so I had to cast on a couple times with less and less stitches each time and it was still a bit big but VERY warm!

Here is me with my glasses...I don't normally wear them much but here you go anyway. :)

Then I called my sister so she could come try it on...sorry no picture of her with it on...but here is Surfer Girl, her daughter with it on.
And then her son Crazy boy!
and I had to include this picture of her husband, who is hungry and ready to go eat dinner! :)Ok...there is some knitting and a small catch up about my life! I will post another post tomorrow with DOGGIES!! and maybe get some sheep fiber pictures up! I did recieve the sheep fleece from the WI sheep farmer. All 27 lbs of it!! I love it!! I'll tell you more later!
